About this recipe: The citrus marinade used in this recipe is made with sprigs of fresh marjoram. One or two hours of marinating is all that is required: a longer period affects the texture of the fish.

Serves: 4 

  • 7 tablespoons fresh grapefruit juice
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 dessertspoon chopped fresh marjoram
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

Prep:5min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Mix together grapefruit juice, olive oil, 1 dessertspoon marjoram, salt and pepper in a shallow glass dish. Add fish, turn once to coat both sides, then cover. Refrigerate 1 to 2 hours, turning once or twice.
  2. Preheat barbecue.
  3. Reserve marinade, and place fish in lightly oiled wire basket. Place fish 4 to 6 inches above hot coals. Grill for 10 to 12 minutes, turning once and brushing twice with reserved marinade, until steaks are barely opaque in thickest part. Arrange on a platter, and garnish with sprigs of marjoram.


Choose Pacific halibut for the most sustainably sourced choice.

I changed the fish to dover sole and found that the marinade, even after two hours had not really penetrated enough to have the the flavour impact I would like after 90 minutes. So, definitely take care to baste the fish with the marinade. - 06 Jun 2015
